LOCKE & KEY Adds Kevin Alves and Laysla De Oliveira


We recently learned that Darby Stanchfield is set to star on Netflix’s adaptation of Joe Hill’s comics Locke & Key. Now, Kevin Alves and Laysla de Oliveira have joined the cast. Alves is set to be in a recurring role for Javi who is described as “the colorful life of the party who doesn’t take life too seriously. He does his best to try to persuade new friend Tyler Locke to do the same.”

Meanwhile, De Oliveira is set to be the series regular named Dodge who is “a beautiful, unpredictable and sinister demon in human form that torments the Locke family.”

Locke & Key is a horror-fantasy series that revolves around siblings Kinsey, Tyler and Bode (Emilia Jones, Connor Jessup and Jackson Robert Scott) who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Massachusetts only to find the house has magical keys that give them a vast array of powers and abilities. Little do they know, a devious demon also wants the keys, and will stop at nothing to attain them.

After the traumatic home attack, Nina Locke moves her family across the country to Keyhouse for a fresh start — and also to solve the mystery surrounding her late husband Rendell’s murder. She struggles with her new role as a single mom, as Rendell was always more the traditional parent type. She’s much more comfortable as an artist and house renovator.

Hill worked with Carlton Cuse and IDW Entertainment to create the adaptation of his comic for Netflix after two failed attempts at getting a series adaptation for Fox and Hulu each.
